It has been moved from our old site. This list along with our Top 50 literary magazine list has gotten a lot of attention. That is not saying they were referring to us or had ever heard of our little list, but we believe it is important for these lists to exist.
We are at this right now writing a new list. It is due out soon. We know some of these magazines have expired… Find a complete listing of literary magazines here For a very long time literary magazines were short print run issues that only dared to be different because they wanted to.
They were pressured by the established writing community, universities, and even money constraints to stay on the norm for as long as it lasted. With the advent of the internet and with so many voices and such large audiences for the taking, it is our goal and we believe should be the goals of others to push the gatekeeper to continue to do the different and riskier thing that helps reading writing and literary journals and writers.
We hope all who have a voice will continue to reward and pressure literary magazines to continue to be different, be better, and shape the face of literary writing. If you are on this list you are welcome to use the logo below to show your readers.
How dare you write a list like this. What good does it do? We could, of course, just alphabetically list magazines here that we feel are among the best. It is of course subjective, but we feel by placing these magazines in an order we are honoring what they publish and what they are attempting to accomplish.
They have do not have counter part that is consistently published in the real world. This means their main source of readership and reputation comes solely from web publishing.
We used the following criteria: What do they do for writers? Do they accept all writing and publish new writers? Do they promote the state and wellbeing of writing on the web?
What have they done for writing on the web? Did they make headway for writing and respect on the web? Do they help writers and other web publications just publishing?
What do they bring to readers? Do they publish great writing? Do they publish in a timely fashion? Do their new writers go on to bigger and better things? What is their readership?
Do they take risks that have paid off?
Have they risked anything for writing and made the better the craft and the state of publishing? We have a couple of newcomers to the list, and we believe the state of literary writing is ever improving.
All of the magazines on this list are outstanding. They are all worth reading, submitting your work to, supporting with a donation. Visit them and sign up for their mailing lists.
We hope this list is much improved, and we have suppled more information with each magazine to make them easier to find and our list more useful to you. Tell us that you think below or you can discuss this list on our message boards.
Not many publications in print or online have been able to be successful AND keep creative content as their bread and butter. Narrative is attempting to do just that. They are working week after week to bring great writing to the web and to promote writers.
It is like the Atlantic Monthly depending on fiction and poetry first and articles second. Narrative acquired long time print magazine Story Quarterly and is now carrying out a literary tradition by bringing that writing to the mainstream.Purpose: The reading journal asks that students express in writing their own personal interests and insights and build on the skills they already intuitively possess: the ability to observe, to listen, to take notes, to reflect on their notes, and to ask questions that are borne out of a sense of genuine curiosity.
The Journal, published twice yearly by the Ohio State University, publishes exciting, challenging writing, without giving the impression that writers are the core audience. If you care about language and about a well-crafted plot, consider The Journal for your work.
Reading and Writing publishes high-quality scientific articles pertaining to the processes, acquisition, and loss of reading and writing skills. The journal fully represents the necessarily interdisciplinary nature of research in the field, focusing on the interaction among various disciplines, such.
The reason, in a nutshell, is reading fees—also called submission or service fees—which many literary journals now charge writers who want to be considered for publication. Most writers get the attention of editors, agents, and other writers by first publishing their writing in literary magazines or literary journals.
(Many literary magazines and journals will offer you a modest payment for the writing they accept, sometimes by giving you a free copy, or contributor's copy, of the issue in which your work appears.).
